I just saw the climate of Lanai City, and I'm amazed. It has become my favorite climate in the USA.
Lanai City, Hawaii vs. Kunming, China
Both cities get an A, but I prefer Lanai City's winters over Kunming's and Kunming's summers over Lanai City's. I prefer Lanai City's precipitation pattern over Kunming's because it gets rainfall all the time, but the amount of rainy days is significantly lower than Kunming's. I can't compare the sunshine because I don't know Lanai City's totals, but Kunming definitely has the perfect amount of sunshine and my favorite pattern.
In the end, I would pick Lanai City because it can't get cold in winter and the precipitation is spread much more evenly than in Kunming.

USA has more variety in terms of climate. My favorite climate city in the US is Honolulu. In China, Sanya. I would pick Honolulu because winters are warmer (although just barely) and the ocean around Hawaii is also warmer.

USA by far.

They have California.

China is just humid subtropical, continental and desert. All which can get very cold and hot.

USA wins this easily as they have some Csa climates, which China doesn't.

US has two coastlines while China has only has one. I guess we have a winner.

Hong Kong vs New Orleans

The Gulf Coast is much sunnier while having more thunderstorms, and comparable humidity. Also more variety throughout the year. USA wins.

The U.S.A have Seattle and South-East Alaska. China has nothing like that.

1.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco
vs
Lhasa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

San Francisco wins for mild temps, and general nice weather. The winter could be wetter, but that is not a large issue.


2.

Boone, North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
vs
Lhasa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lhasa wins for milder temps, as well as being sunny (the summer rains are short, and it's still sunny during summer, which is why I didn't mind the wet season). Although I do like Boone's more even rain spread much better, it's not enough to give it the win.



3. I like China's options a bit better, it has all the options of the U.S, except a few. They both have east coast climates, tropical climes (Hawaii and Hainan), desert areas (The Gobi and Mojave), etc. While I know America has two coasts, the wet winters ruin it a little (except in Cali, but some of it is too warm), and China has it's own special places in Tibet. Also China does have an equivalent to Alaska, the badly cold northeastern regions, which aren't as cold as Alaska, but pretty nasty in their own right. In the end though, China doesn't win by much. They both have a great variety of options and a good place for (almost) everyone!

Lhasa(actually looks like a great overall climate!) is way better than Boone to be honest, but overall the United States seems a little more reasonable. The whole Pacific coast is way more comfortable than anything China has to offer and the interior/mountain states are more comfortable than most of China. Some of the climates found in China that are listed as humid subtropical are nightmarish. I'll agree that some of the highland climates and most of Tibet looks pleasant all in all but it doesn't make up for the sometimes frightening Shanghai, Beijing, and other places.
